Yeah, I wish.
Looks like no updates today. Tomorrow?
I would like to see that exact same thing on apple.com tuesday (hopefully) after the updates.
So basically it is a white powerbook?
Would that dissappoint you?
looks nice but not real
I wonder if Apple will release new iBooks after the "Buy a Mac. Get a free iPod mini." promotion. I would think that they would but would welcome any new iBooks as part of the promotion.
If they get these new iBooks out ASAP, it would be a great boost for sales considering the Back to Schook shopping season.
No. It just doesn't seem plausible. Why would Apple give the iBook almost exactly the same specs as its $1000 more big brother? Nice job with the pic, but next time maybe a little more realistic.
Well I did at work, and mostly used Paint
Looks god, just change the graphics card to the one the 12-inch PowerBook uses, and your there.
nah, today's world would never let apple get away with a "white power" book.
That makes no sense. Why would Apple change the graphics card to one with almost the same performance? According to Apple, Core Image runs faster on the processor than on the FX5200.
hahah I laughed after that one.... and then I cried.... and then I laughed some more
But I can't ever remember any iBook having a faster vid card than than the current PowerBooks of the time. Can anyone confirm or dispute this (my memory tends to be flakey)?
9600 it will be!
Why not! ... as i mentioned in anothere thread ...emac, imac, power mac use 9600! with different menories and bandwidths 64, 128, 256! I think apple would want to consolidate it's line for now ... more than get into product differentiation. Thus a bottlenecked version of 9600 is what we are going to see!
I don't believe that this will happen either.
But in any case, a switch to FX5200 isn't a smart move by Apple. Either they should leave the present card and maybe give it 64MB or put in a Mobility R9600 and update the 12" PowerBook to Mobility R9700 at the same time.
I smell an opening for a Dave Chappelle routine....
Uhh, I don't see standard bluetooth!
So .. it's a white, crippled powerbook.
NO BLUETOOTH FOR YOU! Come back, one year!
(unless I can't read and it's in there. Whatever.)
The New iBook
Looks good to me. Maybe, just maybe, it will be released tomorrow.
Lets hope the real new iBook is thinner. 0.6 inches anyone?
That would be very nice - but, I think that we will have to wait for the 'Books with Pentium M's before we see an Apple portable that thin.
www.apple-history.com seems to be a pretty accurate portrayal of macs and their specs on any given quarter of any given year
sometimes the difference between an ibook and the powerbook has been slight all around, but i could not imagine apple upping the ibook to current powerbook specs without also upping the powerbook specs
the clamshell ibook of july 1999 got airport capability and uniform motherboard architecture before the g3 powerbook did
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN
Half the posts on this site are about the ibooks that (cross fingers, knock on wood) should be released sometime tommorow.
bottlenecked... what does that mean
